  • Transmitting Life from Deep Black Holes
  • Genre: Soundscape Composition, Live Improvisation
  • Duration: 45 min
  • Transmitting Life from Deep Black Holes harnesses a fusion of clipped and modified samples from diverse sources. These include snippets of sound transmissions from interplanetary probes that have journeyed through our solar system, intertwined with recordings of drones emanating from the machinery of Brazilian mining corporations, which carve massive cavities in the earth akin to entire neighborhoods. Additionally, it
    incorporates excerpts from interviews, lectures, and conversations broadcasted by the Brazilian media in recent years.
    By appropriating the electromagnetic waves permeating the cosmos, those pulsating within the Earth's core, and those engendering our collective existence, Transmitting Life from Deep Black Holes aims to stimulate contemplation on our existence and our interconnectedness with our environment. These electromagnetic waves transcend human agency, embodying manifold meanings and interpretations regarding our impact on, and reception from, our surroundings.

    This project seeks to incite reflection through sound and vibration, prompting introspection about our place in the world and our rapport with the universe. Electromagnetic waves are not solely contingent upon human intervention, nor do they merely denote a particular civilization's expression, they harbor within them a plethora of significances and possibilities for understanding. They underscore the intricate interplay between our immediate surroundings and the vast expanse beyond.

    By polarizing these waves, Transmitting Life from Deep Black Holes endeavors to resonate with alternative modes of perception and cognition, fostering new avenues for contemplating ourselves and our relationship with the world around us.

Frederico Pessoa

Frederico Pessoa is a musician and sound artist, holding a master’s and doctoral degree
in arts from the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil. He has been working on the
reappropriation of various utensils and their transformation into aesthetic-sonorous
objects, as well as collecting sounds and images from everyday events and redefining
them in sound pieces, audiovisual works, and multimedia performances. His recent works
delve into contemporary political issues through sound, such as the relationships between
humans and non-humans, mining, the silencing of incarcerated populations, police
repression, among other similar themes. Additionally, he has been writing texts at the
intersection of literature and sociological analysis of listening, aiming to explore, through
words, the mobilization possibilities that sound creates.
